Rapper Nicki Minaj has been accused of spreading coronavirus misinformation after tweeting about an associate’s alleged bad reaction to the COVID-19 vaccine and urging her fans to not be “bullied” into getting it. What are your thoughts?

Yeah, I’m not getting my medical advice from Nicki Minaj.

But who listens to Nicki Minaj when it comes to such issues? Only madmen do.

Ayesha J., Chicago
She sounds like a child — “my cousin’s friend in Trinidad…” Any story that starts like that is either a lie or is too far removed to be proven.

Allison Rogers, New York
My opinion is that knowing how many minorities are contracting COVID and how many are dying, Nicki would be a better role model if she took the vaccine and encouraged her followers to do so for the good of public health. We can put an end to this distressing period in our history worldwide.

Nikki Massie, Baltimore
I mean, that’s her right.
